Welcome to the
Georgia Transit Association

On behalf of GTA President Rhonda Briggins:
 
Dear GTA Members,
 
During the first two full weeks of June, I will make myself available for 15-minute one-on-one conversations with GTA members.  The purpose of the conversations is to gather input from GTA membership to improve the Association.  We want to hear anything you can offer for the good of the Association including, but not limited to, issues, concerns, ideas, thoughts, suggestions, what we do well, or what we can do better. 
 
On June 21, I will present a compilation of the conversations to the Executive Board for consideration as we begin this year’s strategic planning for the Association.
 
Please click on the link below to schedule your preferred date and time.  I look forward to hearing your thoughts.  Together we can build a stronger Association.

The Georgia Transit Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving public transportation in the state of Georgia.

  • Present the legislative interests of rural and urban public transit entities;
  • Provide a forum for the exchange of information, ideas and experiences;
  • Work toward securing adequate and stable funds for public transit; and
  • Promote a positive image for transit throughout Georgia.


LOCAL ECONOMIC IMPACT OF TRANSIT

  • $1 invested = $4.00 in Return on Investment 
  • Households near public transit drive an average of 4,400 fewer miles than households with no access to public transit. 
  • In Atlanta, $896 is saved per person in a 2-person household using public transit and living with one vehicle. 

Georgia ranks as the 48th state in per capita investment in transit and provides very little in operating assistance to public transit providers.

Our mission is essential to the future health of public transportation in Georgia. Quality of life, environmental concerns, economic development and personal mobility options are issues that can be greatly enhanced in this state by a balanced approach to transportation investment.
